Anyone heard of Google Starred Results?

I got so excited this morning when I typed in one of my keywords (to see how my PPC ads were doing) and here I saw three of my web pages naturally ranked 1,2 and 3 with stars next to it on top of it!. Nearly did a back flip!

Excitement didn't last long. Just Google "what is Google starred results". I'm not sure yet, but don't think I like it.

What does confuse me is if I toggle the SEO information underneath my site, it shows like 2m plus links, only 5 twitter links, PR of 0 etc. I can only gather this information is actually the information relevant to the Google page that facilitates the Starred facility, yet it is the info reflected for my site. Very confusing and nonsensical.

Maybe someone knows more about this?

Thanks I have actually seen the official Google blog post and that's why I posted this, just to let people know.

My question was actually about the confusing info underneath my site on the search page.
